Maria Parcak-Ruiz Part 2

In Part 1, Maria, Curly and Lou had been blown clear of a collapsing cave. Lou and Curly were unhurt but Maria's leg had been injured when it was pinned under a large rock during the cave-in. Maria cringed with each step of her prosthetic leg. The pain had gotten worse, so bad, in fact,... Continue Reading →

Yuki Gets to Earth Part 13

For the second time since she arrived on the planet, Yuki had fallen asleep in a moving vehicle. The gentle swaying and the sound of her mom’s voice had made keeping her eyes open difficult. Her mom, noticing her head drop forward for the umpteenth time, had finally insisted she go to bed. Yuki was... Continue Reading →

Yuki Gets to Earth Part 12

The trip had been uneventful, and the weather stayed nice.

She folded... Continue Reading →

Qbit and Skyler Part 2

This is going to be a long one folks so get comfortable and enjoy! Qbit’s push through the gate caused Skyler to lose his balance. He hit the beach face first and spread-eagle; his helmet ended up half buried in a mound of sand. Somehow, Qbit managed to arrive upright and on both feet. Skyler... Continue Reading →

Yuki Gets to Earth Part 10

Yuki stepped up onto a wooden pallet set outside the door. A small sign hung by a rusty wire, it read; Wipe your feet! She looked down to see that she was standing on a worn rubber mat; the word WELCOME was almost completely faded from what was probably years of people following the signs... Continue Reading →
